Check out this beauty!
We inherited this dresser when my husband and I got married. It was my husband's grandpa's. That's what I love about old furniture--it was built to last! I always thought it was so ugly, but what I didn't realize, was that it had such potential! So finally one day a couple years ago I got the courage and decided to redo it. So I spent A LOT of time sanding it down. What a mess and what a pain! I got paint with primer and painted the dresser gray and then spray painted the existing hardware. It looked pretty good, but I didn't love it and the paint and spray paint chipped easily.
Then BB Frösch came along, and I realized that I could easily touch it up!
So I mixed up just enough paint using my left over paint from the original project (another chalk paint powder plus-just mix what you need, no waste!), and in LESS THAN AN HOUR I did a quick coat on my dresser & and 3 quick coats of white on my metal handles.
Yes, YOU CAN PAINT ON METAL!
I brushed the wax on, and I was done! ...or so I thought. I kept staring at it for a couple weeks, and knew it wasn't complete, so I decided to paint stripes on the side. I measured and taped down my spaces, painted it the same white as the hardware and waxed it in...then I was done (for real this time).
So I present to you the after-after's :)
This dresser is in my children's room, and I am happy to report that after about 3 months, it is holding up great! (Another plus of BB Frösch wax is durability!)
